Finally we get to this this!! We had our “WedFest” on the 12th Sept this year. Shout out to our amazing suppliers, vendors and our families. We had the best day of our lives and the only advice we have is to enjoy it, don’t stress and take 15 minutes out for yourselves just to sit back and take it all in. Kippure Estate is an amazing venue completely everything we wanted for our day, nothing was too much trouble for them and Sinead the wedding planner was amazing! Our band had the floor full all night and a lot our guests commented how good they were! Simon our photographer caught some amazing pics. Lorna & Jacinta

My husband and I got married at Kippure Sept 2019 and can honestly say it was the best day ever. The entire staff at Kippure were incredibly helpful, kind and patient, and took care of things that we didn't even know needed to be taken care of on the day, ensuring that we were not stressed at all. They took care to make sure that all aspects of the venue were beautifully decorated, and kept the day fun and relaxed while still accommodating everyone's needs. For a beautiful setting with fabulous staff, Kippure is the best bet. I know I am forgetting plenty of people, but a special thanks to Sinead, Ann, Cecilia, Orla and Tom. They were so patient and thoughtful with overseas bookings, set-up, guests with limited mobility and more. So thankful for all you did ??

Hi Sinead, Just back from honeymoon and back to reality today! On behalf of myself and Rob, I just wanted to thank you all so so much for creating the most perfect day for us on the 28th! It was everything we had hoped for and so much more. We were blessed with the weather and were absolutely made-up to be able to have the ceremony in the woods. The decoration and touches you put down there made it so beautiful. The marquee and lawn looked equally as beautiful. Big big thanks to Cecylia who was incredible from the minute we arrived. She was so lovely and did such an amazing job with laying our decorations and bits and pieces around. Everybody commented on how fantastic the food was (hog roast), it really was delicious !! So thank you, and to everyone else behind the scenes that made our day so special, we really couldn't have asked for anymore. Pam & Rob

Hi guys, Sorry for taking so long to get in touch! We only got our photos last week and have been meaning to email to say thanks again for everything on the wedding day. Looking back and everything really was perfect for us, and couldn't have imagined it any better. The only complaint is that it went by too quickly!! The setting, the food and staff were all fantastic and we're already thinking of an excuse to hold a big family party with you again! Kind regards, Aaron & Soph!

Where do I start? We got married here in August. Kippure Estate was the only venue we viewed and from the moment we drove in we knew it was perfect. The place is absolutely beautiful. It's hard to believe we were 15 minutes from 'the real world' you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere in the countryside. From start to finish Sinead and all the staff in Kippure went above and beyond for us. Nothing was too big or small of us to ask. Every detail was taken care of before we could even think of it. It was the best day of our lives and every last guest commented on how wonderful the staff and venue was. The house were lovely, the view was unreal. I cannot recommend Kippure more. To Sinead and all the staff thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You helped make the most special day of our lives even more special.” Ciara & Wesley

Where to begin.... Charlie and I immediately fell in love with Kippure, it’s so close to Dublin, yet you feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere. The drive up to the estate is so picturesque filled with postcard views of the Wicklow mountains. Upon meeting the General Manager Sine?ad, it was quite clear that we were in safe hands. She brought us around the estate informing us on the many options for our ceremony and we got a real feel for what the day would be like. Their website is great as they have pictures from lots of other couples weddings so you can really envision your own day. What we really liked about Kippure was that in some ways it’s a blank canvas, you can really put your own stamp on your day with decor and flowers. Speaking of flowers, Kippure were amazing for us, they put so much thought and effort into the table centres and the ceremony. Sine?ad was so easy to work with and very quick to get back to us, she made us feel so at ease and couldn’t have done enough for us. Anything we suggested was as good as done. She helped us every step of the way and was very happy to deal with any last minute changes. Our wedding party stayed in two of the houses the night before the wedding. We had a chance to meet the decoration team and talked through every detail to make sure it would be just right on the day. We then had a beautiful meal in the bar and arranged breakfast to be delivered to the houses the following morning along with sandwiches in the afternoon. The morning of the wedding we woke to a huge breakfast delivered to our door along with anything we needed. We initially wanted to have our ceremony outside, but alas we had a Winter wedding in the middle of June, but this didn’t affect our day, Sine?ad and her team quickly turned the smaller marquee attached to the bar into a beautiful ceremony room and it looked so beautiful, with candles and flowers everywhere. As it was raining, Sine?ad made sure I was driven from my room to the marquee, which I didn’t even suggest. The fact that it rained meant that all our guests stayed together rather than dispersing around the estate which was really nice. We had a trad band play at our drinks reception in the traditional Irish bar, this really got the party started. There was a break in the weather so Charlie and I went to take some beautiful photos around the estate, and it was actually such a nice 40 minutes or so where we got to spend some time together. We got some stunning photo’s as the landscape is so beautiful in Kippure. It’s worth getting your photographer to have a proper look around to find some beautiful places to get some portraits. The food was really good and Kippure have plenty of options, depending on whatever budget you’re working with. We also wanted our wedding cake to be served as dessert, which again, was no problem at all. That was the response we got for everything, “no problem”, everything was done swiftly and with care. The waiting staff were all so polite and helpful, one waitress Anna even held one of our guests babies while she ate her dinner, Billy is a particularly cute baby! The transition from the speeches, to serving meals, to clearing plates was all so seamless you hardly noticed it was happening. In terms of sound systems and equipment, Kippure had everything we needed and were great when it came to our band and DJ setting up. They made sure they had everything they needed and it all went without a hitch! We partied well into the night/ wee hours and there was never any pressure to finish up. It was a huge success, a bloody great night and we’d love to do it all over again! Thank you so much to all the team in Kippure, especially Sine?ad who was a God send and made everything so easy for Charlie and I.

We had our wedding here the end of June. Sinead, Cecylia and the team at Kippure estate were incredible. Sinead was an amazing wedding coordinator and really went above and beyond to make our day special. the little touches like matching the wild flowers to our pastel colour theme and stocking our crisp cart for us were very much appreciated and a lovely touch. The food was amazing we went for the hog roast and had guest complementing the food even now two months later. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to getting married to view this venue, it is picturesque and the team at Kippure Estate are very professional and are there to help.

We had our wedding here in May 2019 and it couldn't have been any better. It was above all our expectations. From start to finish all the staff were a pleasure to deal with. Everything on the day and leading up to it went without a hitch. Cecylia and Sinead were very helpful and did their best to ensure we had a great and stress free day. Luckily the weather was kind to us so we were fortunate to have the ceremony outdoors. The views are spectacular and a great backdrop for a wedding. The food was amazing, we went for the hot/cold buffet. It ran very smoothly. All of our guests were very well fed with many going for second and third helpings. Accommodation was perfect for our needs and everyone was able to be catered for. We highly recommend this venue for any couples looking for a laid back, rustic wedding location. Thanks so much for a wonderful day to all the staff at Kippure Estate.

We got married in Kippure estate and it was amazing. We didn't want a "traditional" hotel, sit-down, 5 course meal - it just isn't us. We wanted something tailored to what we envisioned our big day to be. So few places offered this and we were so happy when we found Kippure. Spit roasted pig for dinner? Gorgeous! Up in the Wicklow mountains with an outside wedding? Beautiful!
From the very beginning, the team were efficient, friendly and so helpful. The process was relaxed but professional throughout.
Grainne and then Cary and Jenny did an amazing job in organising everything, the decorations and the running of the day
Catherine and the accommodation team were so helpful in organising the accommodation for the day and the buffet the next day
The food was so tasty and was everything we had hoped it to be both on the day and also the buffet the following day.
The bar staff were friendly and so nice throughout the day - even as things got rowdier!
I would highly recommend Kippure as a wedding venue, the staff are so friendly and helpful, the packages are varied and wonderful and the venue is amazing. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would!
